Loaded Baked Potato Dip

I hear there’s a big game this weekend. Something about football? American football, I believe…

You got me! I’m not much of a sports fan. I don’t mind getting together with others to watch a big game, but that’s only because of the food. It’s all about the food, and I make plenty of it.

Shocking, I know! With only a few ingredients you may already have in your own home, you can have an amazing dip your guests will talk about for weeks to come.
